Shopper’s Diary: House of Orange in Australia

August 11, 2011 3:30 PM

BY Julie Carlson

Hans and Ursula van Schoonhoven founded House of Orange in Melbourne, Australia, as a way to promote the Northern European design aesthetic—Dutch design in particular; "the edginess, the natural mixing of old and new, and the attention to form and function," as they say. We especially like their Back to Basics line of outdoor furniture, featuring reclaimed timbers, simple lines, and limewash finishes. Go to House of Orange to see more.
